both sides take their position to the people. what they are asking the american people to do. >> gunfire in a contra costa park. what they were doing there in the first place. and the prices of some big- ticket medications are set to drop. >> allan martin, ken has the night off tonight. a little showdown over the debt drama on primetime tv. first the president hit the networks asking americans who believe in compromise to call their representatives in washington. >> under a then came the republican speaker of the house who accused the president of creating a crisis atmosphere. robert liles shows us the drama may be aimed at one group in particular. >> president obama: the economy will be held captive unless they get their way. >> an angry president obama believes the nation has been hijacked by this republican plan. >> president obama: it's called the cut, cap and balance act. >> house speaker john boehner says his plan is a two-step
approach, temporarily raising the debt ceiling while cutting 1.2 trillion in spending. it goes on to create a bipartisan commission of 6 republicans and 6 das to identify another 1.8 trillion in cuts. >> unfortunately the president would not take yes for an answer. >> reporter: obama says what bayneer has offered the nation is a shell game, the one that temporarily increwses the debt ceiling. >> president obama: one which would force us to face the threat of default 6 months from now. in other words, it doesn't solve the problem. >> reporter: in other words, default railses its worrisome head smack in the middle of the race for the white house so president obama wants both houses to vote in no more than three days for this plan by democratic senator harry reid. it increases the debt ceiling through the end of 2012 while cutting $2.3 trillion in domestic and defense spending. >> the fact is that the president wanted a blank check
6 months ago and he wants a blank check today. this is just not going to happen. >> reporter: the word "hijack" is, i think, a strong term, but in this case it's really pretty accurate. >> cbs5 political analyst joe tuman says what we see playing out tonight is political theater and the audience is the tea party. >> those tea party members and their voters with regard to any compromise by the republican party is going pack on a promise. >> reporter: so much so tuman says the battle is not necessarily the president versus the republicans but infighting, the republicans versus the tea party. >> the inflexibility the tea party members has demonstrated so far has brought us to the brink of a very real crisis in this country. they should be careful to take a page from newt gingrich's contract with america. that party overreached and produced the election results we saw in 1996 and the democrats thereafter dominating the agenda from the white
house. >> reporter: now, again, the president is asking each american to contact their congressman. meanwhile, boehner and reed want to hold volts on wednesday but each of their plans may be in jeopardy and that is because boehner needs to win over republicans, including the tea party, who want deeper cuts and reed, whether he will he needs a few republicans to get to that necessary 60-vote for passage and as of today it is certainly not clear that either of those plans are a winning option at this point. >> call it what you will, a dance, a game, theatrics, drama, it is dangerous. >> and we are struggling at this point and getting per lousily close to that august 2nd deadline. >> robert liles, thank you. gunmen opened fire tonight on a ranger in a contra costa county park. that shooting triggered a massive search. elizabeth cook tells us that it hasn't turned up anything so far anyway. liz? >> reporter: that's right allan, law enforcement crews
from multiple agencies called off their search just about an hour ago the maraga area in rancho laguna park. they were looking at multiple gunmen who they say fired on a park ranger. early this evening law enforcement got a call that a park ranger was being shot at by high-powered rifles. he was not injured but a special response team had to go into the wilderness and rescue him. hours after, they continued to search the vast remote area looking for other victims and the gunmen. they believe the suspects may be affiliated with some marijuana grows in the area. officers told people who live in the neighborhood to stay in their homes until the search was over. >> it's scary because the only way these police guys can go is come back here in the town or they can run towards the hills but they are definitely scary. >> now officers did say they believed the gunmen will probably stay in the wilderness
at not come into the nearby area. officers said they'll continue their search tomorrow morning. >> all right. that was elizabeth cook in maraga. one person was shot in the north beach neighborhood. they heard a shot and saw a black suv speed away. the victim was found eventually on the corner of mason and columbus. no word on how badly hurt that victim is. the man charged in norway's rampage is being held in isolation. the suspect has already told authorities that he expects to be there until he dies. his manifesto calls for an attack every 5 to 12 years. jeff gore shows us even his father seems to think that his son would be better off dead. anders bearing write vac is changes his story. after insisting it was his work alone he hinted that two cells of extremists worked with him.
both capable of more attacks. he was denied the court hearing and ordered held at least 8 weeks. the most of the time in solitary. while that will give him time to think this 32-year-old, a self proclaimed knight, is going to do remorse. his 1500 page manifesto indicating he began planning his attacks all the way back in 2002 is exhaustively detailed. insisting he is not guilty of any crime because he was needed to send europe back to the days of white christian domination. from france breivik's father who hasn't spoken to his son in years says he wished he would have killed himself after the onslaught. the bombing of government buildings in oslow left 8 dead. 90 minutes later a youth campground shooting spree that lasted for an hour and a half. officials today revived down
the number of dead to 68 but it's still the worst shooting by a single gunman in modern times. now this country of 5 million comes together to say good-bye. there was this enormous gathering in downtown oslow today all prompted at first by a single user on facebook. there was supposed to be an official march through the streets but police had to cancel that because so many people showed up they couldn't handle the overflow. the total crowd, 200,000, many carrying rosaries of remembrance. norway has made very clear they would like to move beyond this and not give breivik any more of a platform. jeff gore, cbs news, oslow, norway. we're learning more about the two suspects in the beating of bryan stow. cameras were not allowed in the courtroom during their arraignment today but the suspects, louis sanchez and marvin norwood, apparently implicated each other in the attack. sanchez works as an auto
detaylor in fontana and the los angeles times reports that one or both bragged to coworkers about the attack. they allegedly attacked three other people that night at dodger stadium. >> the other alleged assault occurred after the game prior to the attack on mr. stow. >> court documents show that norwood had five weapons in his home and that sanchez told a witness not to talk about the stow assault. >> the family of a washington state man who died during a gun battle with san francisco police has teamed up with oakland attorney john burris. burris' firm will represent ken it harding's family to ensure what the attorney says is a transparent investigation into harding's death. harding's mother described her son who was on parole for juvenile rape and also called a person of interest in a recent murder a god-fearing man who was raised in a church. >> he was very independent.
umm, he was very loving, caring, giving. he loved his family and he loved his mother. >> police say they shot at harding after he opened fire on them during a foot chase. neither burris or the family addressed the possibility of a civil lawsuit. seattle police have warned bay area police departments that harding's brother, who is believed to be wanted in questioning for a murder, may be in the bay area right now. other stories making headlines around the bay area, the response time to a house fire could slow to 20 minutes or month if proposed cuts are approved for the east contra costa fire district. that's according to the firefighter's union president. that district covers brentwood, oakley, discovery bay, myron and bethel island. it is $3 million short in its budget. potential cuts include dropping
